The main thing I remember is that the headlights turned with the steering wheel (so, basically, they'd always point in the same direction as the front wheels rather than the body, which would be better for curves/turns), which seems like a good idea, but must not be since no one has done it since. But that would definitely qualify as a pretty revolutionary idea, so Howard's point was valid even if he had the specifics wrong.
I just read up on it, and apparently they installed a third headlight on the hood. So the other lights were stationary, but when the car made turns at a certain angle the center light would activate and follow the turn. But apparently there were laws against a car having more than 2 headlights, so they designed a special cover for it. Wild stuff.
